2. Keisean Nixon

The Packers will need to evaluate the state of their cornerback room after this season. Green Bay traded Rasul Douglas ahead of this year's trade deadline, sending him to Buffalo, and could look at reshaping the room outside of their one stud.

Right now, it's Jaire Alexander and then everyone else. Corey Ballentine may have a future as the team's other outside corner, as could Carrington Valentine. But, Keisean Nixon's position needs an upgrade.

Green Bay has to go out and find a better option at nickel. Nixon's greatest strength isn't even at the cornerback position, but as a return man. If you ask an outlet like Pro Football Focus, Nixon has been average all-around this season, and the Packers have had enough of "average" in 2023.

For further context, Nixon is allowing an opposing quarterback rating of 100.0 on the year. He's missed over 22 percent of his tackles. He is also allowing nearly 80 percent of targets to be completed.
